I seem to be encountering various problems since the update to 73, the main one is the profile folder, I dislike the default location so have previously just put my preferred location in appdata\roaming\mozila\profiles.ini but 73 regularly ignores this and puts a basic profile in the default location and alters profile.ini. Using the profile manager does not get any better results. I am also having problems with the home page, I have set a custom page but 73 often resets this to a blank page or sometimes the default home page. I have had to resort to a 'portable' version as 73 constantly resetting things was getting so annoying but the portable does not work well as a default browser.

I've used Firefox's protection settings on strict, until I realized how much it increases my CPU usage. This was during some experimenting after I've noticed that my Task Manager states 70%; a majority of it being used by the browser's engine (I kept it on standard and installed uBlock Origin since then).

What's with that?

As above- upload test shows about the same amount higher than Edge. This has been occurring for around 3 months since I upraded to fibre broadband. Before the upgrade FF as always faster on both down and upload speeds. Immediately afer the upgrade Edge ad FF were the same This was so for about 3-4 week after the uprade, then the FF speed fell. There have been several updates to FF and I have tried reinstalling FF and various other changes to settings all to no avail.

I am using Windows 10 latest versions on two seperate laptops,one being a Toshiba ( Windows 10 Pro) the other an ASUS (Windows 10 Home). Both have this problem. I am using the Ookla Speedtest.net and the Talktalk speedest (also supplied by Ookla) and with the same results. The problem is the same with wifi as with ethernet. I am in the UK. I thought it might be the router, but why the difference between browsers and why after a few weeks and not immediately after the upgrade? Appreciate any sggestions, thank you in advance.

Half the time when I need to print websites to PDF, using print to pdf function, Firefox does not print the webpage properly. I know that I can probably go in the printing setting to change it for that page and that might fix the problem. But for my project, I need to do this nearly 150 websites everyday. So fiddling around with every other website and Firefox print setting is not an option. I have attached a sample print to PDF to show the problem. When I print, half the content is hidden. In contrast, whenever I use Google Chrome, I never have this issue. The default printing settings just work, every single time in Chrome. I don't want to switch to Chrome because I want to support the Mozilla/Firefox mission. But the minor issues in Firefox are frustrating.

Between the lack of a translation tool that can translate the webpage and the poor default printing setting, I am nearly ready to switch. Firefox developers, if you're reading this, please fix this printing issue. While you're at it, please add an inbuilt webpage translation tool. Nobody want to copy and past webpages to translate them. I really want to stick with Mozilla, but you have to improve these little features within the browser.

Actually never mind, cannot attach the pdf to show the issue in this forum. FANTASTIC (sarcasm)! Here is a sample screen shot instead. It shows what the print out looks like when "print to pdf" file is saved.

As stated in the title, for some reason firefox likes to freeze itself, other programs and sometimes whole windows by using up 100% of disk. As windows resource monitor shows, this happens when mozilla tries to write a lot of stuff to profile files simultaneously, which happens every half an hour or so. The only addon I am currently running is adblock+. The amount of tabs open doesn't seem to affect when this happens or for how long. Usually open tabs are social media, yt, wiki and google docs.

Hi Have a web-site that I subscribe to for UK and Irish horse racing. Some pages produce lengthy tables/rows with lots of data. When I view this information on Firefox the tables are slightly misaligned. However when I visit the same urls on an alternative browser like Chrome or Edge the tables/row are perfectly aligned when I scroll across the page. Its looks like an incompatibility with the Firefox browser.

https://www.proformracing.com/race-guides-details.html?date=2020-3-2 You probably wont be able to see this info as you need a subscription to view this data.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure if "the Navigation Pane" is the right name for the list of addresses I use frequently. E.g. if I want to go to the Microsoft help page, I would look at a list of Names (& Addresses) that I have instructed Firefox to add. In my case, i had them appear as a window on the left side of my Firefox page. The navigation pane has disappeared from my browser page. The Options selection page on my Firefox home page doesn't have a "navigation" option, or else it is hidden from my prying eyes.

Although I've checked the session restore box in Options, I had a problem. With different windows open, I closed the first one (with the tabs I wanted restored), worked with the second window, then shut down FF. When I went back to FF it would only restore the second window. I have an online backup service so I can retrieve AppData from a few days ago -- how do I use that to restore the session from the first window? thanks

Hi everybody, I have been using for years Mozilla and the tabs as a useful productive tool to keep the pages/docs which I was working on, always open and ready to be opened. Every time I closed it, it restored the pages/tabs. Today I opened a second Mozilla session just for 1 page, and I accidentally closed the main one, lately I closed the second one. When I re-opened Mozilla, it restored the one-page second session, and completely lost the tens of tabs and the history I had on the main session.

How can I recover that pages/tabs? Thank you very much

On NBC, I get a screen reading "Well this is awkward. Sorry, it looks like the video or page you're looking for seems to have disappeared - or maybe it never existed to begin with." CBS simply won't let me play the program I select; it's just a black screen. Since both networks had the same problem on the same date, and it hasn't changed since then, I am assuming it is something to do w/my computer settings on Firefox, but have been unable to figure out what to change. Can you "talk" me through it?

When I reopen a closed tab, I would expect it to open on the last page I visited with that tab. For some reason it has been opening the first page I visited with that tab. For example if I visited the following websites "new tab page -> google -> mozilla support" and then closed and reopened this tab, the page would be google. This has only started happening in the last week or two, so I'm wondering if this is intentional or if there's something in about:config that I can change.

Two different PCs connected to the same network, on both there are no third-party antiviruses and firewalls, and native ones are turned off (Windows Defender, etc.). This is not a single case, there are some other sites. If I understand everything correctly, some sites in this way try to bypass the blocking, that the providers of some countries create.

I can't understand why everything works on Windows 7, but doesn’t work on freshly installed and configured Windows 10. I googled this problem, but so far I have not been able to solve it. The browsers on both PCs are configured the same way, I checked all the settings. Connection settings in the OS are also the same.
